Where to plant Forsythia?

Forsythia like full sun or partial shade and moist but well drained soil. Small forms can be grown in patio pots but Forsythia are most often planted in garden borders mixed with other plants, as feature plants or as flowering hedging or screening.

How to care for a Forsythia?

Once established Forsythia are easy to look after. Water young and pot grown plants during dry spells. If pruning is required to reshape a plant do this immediately after flowering to ensure good flowering next year. Older plants may need old or dead wood removing or thinning to promote fresh young growth that will have better flowers.
